Choosing KCP was largely to do with the ease of application. A lot of other summer courses required a lot of paperwork and recommendations and transcripts that are a big pain to gather. But KCP’s application process was very easy and self-explanatory! Also, the student life photos looked interesting!

—Sabrina Greene

I’d say the textbooks were effective, both the ones made by KCP and Minna No Nihongo. They’re thorough and provide a lot of useful information. I use them a lot even when just searching for grammar points or vocabulary. I like the games we’d play in class, too, like role playing about going on trips or eating out at a restaurant and the problems that can or cannot happen. It’s fun and stimulating and gets you thinking on your feet in Japanese

When I was behind in class, my professor met with me every morning until I was able to catch up.

Lauren from Fall 2016

I think that drill work and pair work were the most helpful because they allowed for live practice of learned material without being drowned out by others.

I like the fast paced, but in-depth way the teachers went through each of the lessons.

Yalimar from Summer Short 2015

I felt like I learned so much in my short 2 months here; much more than I have learned in 2 years of Japanese classes at my home university.
